Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida shared a statement on the official PlayStation blog post for the game explaining how the power of the PS5 will be utilized for the game and teasing the action to come.

“With the power of the PlayStation 5 behind us, we’re looking to take you on a seamless, story-driven, white-knuckle ride that will rival even the most thrilling roller-coaster. So buckle up, the wait is almost over!”
